Rodolphus and Larsen, together in one book for the very first time. Although very different writers, these two storytellers stir emotions, produce chills, and introduce people we soon know and love (and sometimes hate and fear). Collected here are such singular works as Fearsweat, wherein a supernatural stalker threatens an entire town. In My Father: The Killer, we meet a young man who has always believed the worst about his father, a famed terrorist. Interstate Chimes accompanies twins completing their separate destinies outside of time and space. We enter an amazing little girl's creative genius in Four-Leaf Clovers. And for a dark laugh (and scream) we ride along with The Dread Cowboy. Included herein is the unfinished Rodolphus master-work, the novella Contest Darkly which taps into the incredible world of Larsen's Vanya Song (a novel 40 years in the making). Rodolphus and Larsen, like coffee and cream, or hemlock and wine, we experience a world incredibly dark, yet vividly bright.

So what's the matter with you?! why are you still single? why are you single again? why are you married again? where are the kids? & uh... uh... that's not your wife... There's no exception to the rule: we're all idiots. We've fallen in love; we finally talk the correct name in our sleep; so we get hitched, though this is probably a good time to scream Out of the frying pan & into the fire! Marriage is scary, awe-producing, holy, but mostly scary. Desi Hunt, of Misbehavior of the Would-Be Wife, is a housewife but behaves like a typographical error against the backdrop of all traditions: the almost-always-there-but-not-like-really-there-housewife kind of deal. It's like a curse: no one knows what's wrong with her. Apparently, not everyone can do marriage. Desi is completely unmarriageable at the moment: not cool with God right now, being sort of clinically allergic to relationships & stuff. She's been forced [seriously] to crave chastity as a side effect of banging her head on the wall for some bloody answers to Why Marry? Her married life has been an anecdote of the shaggy dog: long, rambling, irrational behavior, & finally an irrelevant conclusion. So what is up with Desi & marriage? For everyone else who's relatively normal compared to her, before marriage equals going to bed with your wife from day number one, just so that you know: marriage is a way of life. True we're only human, we all make mistakes: we can count them by the number of crushed hearts, cold tears, severed relationships, forgotten prayers... Just maybe, for crying out loud, we're willing to fail that many times to understand, & that's huge.

Do you like small towns, places off the beaten path, trips down memory lane? Ever wonder if old-fashioned values are still alive in America? Then kick back, unwind, and hop onboard with travel writer Bill Graves as he takes you On the Back Roads. Graves has a knack for finding the quirky, the offbeat in some of the most obscure, yet fascinating, small towns on the map. Among the places and faces he discovers: a town where it's against the law not to own a gun, a town famous for its split pea soup, the wise 83-year-old Emmy who camps alone in the dessert, and a man who hunts live ants for a living. The list goes on! Retired and free to roam in his motorhome, the “RV Author,” Bill Graves, logs 40,000 miles through the western states of California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Wyoming.

Als das Mädchen mit dem Tuch vor dem Gesicht ein Messer zückt, um den Obersten Historiker Londons, Thaddeus Valentine, umzubringen, kann ihm der junge Gehilfe Tom in letzter Sekunde das Leben retten. Er verfolgt das Mädchen, das jedoch durch einen Entsorgungsschacht in die Außenlande entkommt.

Two thousand years ago, there was a great bay and a peaceful land filled with sage, citrus trees, and pine. And there was a tribe called the Topaa. Marimi, a healer in her tribe, is unprepared for what fate holds in store for her. Without her knowledge, her actions place her under the watchful, suspicious gaze of a rival...and Marimi's family is placed under a curse that impacts how their legacy unfolds. From prehistoric California to the days of Spanish explorers, from the time of California colonialism to the swashbuckling cowboy days of early Los Angeles and right up to the present day, Scared Ground tells the story of the female descendants of Marimi. It tells of their loves, their betrayals, their loses, their families, and their ruthless ambitions that would forge a new country.
